LaVar Ball: Lakers Coaches 'Soft' on Lonzo Ball

Long story short, Byron says guys like LaVar need to shut their traps and let the coaches coach. Right now Ball is in his own head about this, maybe guiding the shots rather than just firing away, but the Lakers aren't going to rebuild his shot mid-season.

If Ball is old school, Walton has a modern approach to developing young players.

The Lakers have started the season 7-10, and although Ball has a pair of triple-doubles in that span, his shooting has been poor.

However, Ball's shooting has been a major source of concern, as he has a.313 percentage overall and a meager.228 percentage from three-point range. "I know how to coach him". Maybe even beaten to death - but when your father is a hype man, and Magic Johnson says you're the "face of the franchise" it invites a whole new level of scrutiny.

"Go get the W. Do whatever it takes".

Ball is absolutely correct in saying he's getting open looks.

Ball has admitted frustration but has said throughout he expects things to turn.

Those shots may start to fall - Luke Walton has preached the same thing to Ball, just keep shooting and it will come around. "It's never [smooth]", he said, via Pincus. "It ain't about that. 'Be patient with him?' Ain't no patience if you're winning". A lot of them are wide open, people are going under screens. Then again, this is the same man who recently said that when his middle son, LiAngelo, returned to the United States from almost being imprisoned in China for shoplifting, a situation averted at least in part by Trump's appeal to Chinese President Xi Jinping, he told the teenager, "They try to make a big deal out of nothing sometimes". But Lonzo's time on the court apparently isn't the only gripe LaVar has with his son's coaches. "We are contented with the team and what is best for the team and how we can continue to get better".
